“A Piece Out in the World”
I am an artist. I create. I collaborate. I share my art with others.
These statements have held true for me and show up in my life.
Enter my EQUUS mask.
I have written about my “EQUUS” horse masks before. It seems I get to write about it again. The story continues.
There is a continuing journey filled with opportunities that show up. Opportunities that need to be considered and acted on.
In this case: William Shakespeare’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream”
Our Friend, Brian, is involved in directing “Midsummer Night’s Dream” in Malden, MA with the Oak Grove Improvement Association. They have set up a series of “Theater in the Parks” for the month of July.
My family is involved. I am the graphic artist, and my kids are playing the little fairies. (too cute)
“Midsummer Night’s Dream” has a play within the play. One character wears a donkey mask. So there was a need to have a donkey mask. So one of my EQUUS masks was modified accordingly to be a donkey mask. Cool, yes.
The thing about my EQUUS masks that is interesting to me is that this art work has endured.
I created 6 EQUUS masks in 2000 for Ubiquity stage’s production of “EQUUS”. They are masks/ props.
A lot of props go to the way side after a production. Yet not these masks.
Over the years these masks have been used in 2 plays, one Halloween costume, and 1 art exhibit. And now another play added. A friend mentioned the word “Enduring”. hmmmm
How is this?
This is something to ponder.
Perhaps I should just enjoy each opportunity as it comes.
I’ve enjoyed the events and connections along the way.
I look forward and wonder what’s ahead.
I feel a commitment to share my art with the world.

Darla Dixon organized a group of artists who will create no-charge compassionate portraits for the families who have lost a loved one in Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom. We are looking for artists to join our efforts, and also for non-artists who will help spread the word about this free service and token of our gratitude to families who have sacrificed so much.”
